Driving around Tossing gunpowder snaps out the window You laugh at the looks of surprise You’re just as sweet as people think But you’ve got a wicked streak A mile wide Your love lies in bed When you lace up your shoes in the morning Your children asleep in their beds You’ve always needed to feel yourself moving The wind through your hair As you start to stretch your legs And you run like the wind You’re a cross country star All your life you’ve been a traveler Body in motion Body at rest You can cross the wide ocean But you know who loves you the best Was it in Thailand When it became clear The right length of time to spend Was all the years Still on that island Adventure together World without end It continues forever Up with the sun When an early bird marries a night owl You get all the hours in the day All the days of our lives All the time in the world Every bird in the sky Every star in the milky way And you run like the wind You’re a cross country star All your life you’ve been a traveler Body in motion, body at rest You can cross the wide ocean But you know who loves you The best

You hiked to Machu Picchu On the Inca trail You climbed Kilimanjaro Not afraid to fail Always up for adventure The gamest of the game But the greatest adventure Is this day to day day to day day to day day to day day to day day to day day to day day to day Judy what might seem so mundane About this life together You take each moment and you make It into something special It’s hard to find the words to say How much it means to measure The passing days with you So promise that they’ll last forever You were a middle sister In the second smallest state Studied law and found your mister Was it luck or fate Now you’re working as a mother Love’s the only pay Your sweet son and his baby brother Take up your day to day day to day Day to day day to day Day to day day to day Day to day day to day Judy what might seem so mundane About this life together You take each moment and you make It into something special It’s hard to find the words to say How much it means to measure The passing days with you So promise that they’ll last forever Yours are the stillest waters And the deepest You find what really matters And you keep it What on earth could be better Than to see each other’s face In calm or stormy weather Every day to day day to day Day to day day to day Day to day day to day Day to day day to day Judy what might seem so mundane About this life together You take each moment and you make It into something special It’s hard to find the words to say How much it means to measure The passing days with you So promise that they’ll last forever Day to day day to day Day to day day to day Day to day day to day Day to day day to day
